Haunted House Card...

Hey Ya'll,
 Another bit of fun playing with the Mini Monsters Cartridge.  This one is actually pretty simple.  The Cricut pretty much does all the work, but it was a little too easy... so we had to complicate things a little.  Hee! Hee!
 The card is cut in black, porch layer in lime green, door/shutter layer in purple, window layer in yellow (used the contour feature on the Gypsy to take out the pains to use the yellow for the background of the windows), The shadow layer is white.  All of these pieces were cut at a height of 5.00.
It's hard to see in this picture, but we have another one a little bit further.  This is actually how the card all folds together when it's complete.  When it's open, the window layer is off to one side.  We took this one section and ran it through the cuttlebug using the new Sizzix/Tim Holtz brick texture embossing folder.  The lime green roof section was also textured using the other from the set which is a woodgrain texture.  The wall of the house, after texturing, was highlighted with a metallic copper stamp.  The roof texture was highlighted with a butterscotch stamp.  All of the rest of the pieces were inked on the edges with the same butterscotch color.  Hopefully you can see the details in this next picture.

The spider webs are also from Mini Monsters.  They were also cut from black cardstock at a height of 1.00.  We are just thrilled with this cartridge and having lots of fun with it.  Give it a try!  It's one of the most user friendly carts we have seen!  Also, we have never found an embossing folder with more uses than these new textures folders!  The brick and Woodgrain are amazing and we will soon be loading more and more items we've made using them!  Thanks so much for looking!  Would love to hear your comments or see your fun creations when you use this cartridge.  I have no idea how to post them here, but if you want... we will definately do it for you.  Just let us know how.  Hee! Hee!
